The Platypus Playground Riverside B & B offers self-contained accommodation at Westerway, 60 minutes from Hobart.
The Platypus Playground Riverside B & B is a self-contained fully equipped two bedroom cottage by the river. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and overlooks the river.
Enjoy alfresco dining on the back deck listening to the babbling Tyenna River where you may spot the resident platypus, and fish one of the best trout rivers in Tasmania and be delighted by cheeky blue fairy wrens, or just enjoy the ambience of being ‘by the river’.
There is an emphasis on environmental sustainability, our cleaning products, soaps and shampoos and conditioners are all environmentally friendly to protect the beautiful river environment.
Whether you’ve been wine tasting, browsing the local craft galleries, enjoying the eateries, walking the beautiful forests and mountain tracks of nearby Mt Field National Park, viewing the wild scenery of the South West World Heritage Area and Lake Pedder, gazing at the world’s tallest hardwood trees in the Styx Valley, watching the local wildlife and waterfalls, the Platypus Playground offers a warm and welcome haven.
Breakfast provisions can be provided and we offer complimentary chocolates and port.
